Dry Bridge Market

I’ve visited the Dry Bridge flea market a few times since arriving in Tbilisi, but this past Sunday Sean and I went with a mission: art shopping. I’m dying to get my hands on a local painting, and although we haven’t really been looking in earnest quite yet, it’s been almost nine months and I’m […]

Château Mukhrani Winery

I love wineries. In part, obviously, because I love drinking wine, but also because I find it fascinating to hear about the different vintages directly from the winemakers themselves. I’m no sommelier, but over the years I’ve managed to pick up a teeny bit of wine vocabulary and knowledge. I know I like a dry, […]

Tbilisi AutoMuseum

I’m not much of a car person. To me, they are tools to get from point A to point B. I don’t by any means hate driving – I do enjoy cruising down the highway belting out Taylor Swift lyrics (badly) at the top of my lungs – but I definitely don’t love it either. […]

Restaurant Roundup: March 2019

Here we go again! My favorite restaurants I’ve tried the past few months. Enjoy! Top Five Restaurants: SushiRoom: It’s no secret at this point that I’m obsessed with Asian food in general, sushi in particular. While I still would argue that the best sushi you can find in Tbilisi is at Umami at the Radisson, […]

Narikala Fortress

We’ve reached the time of year where the weather and I really don’t get along. One day it will be freezing cold and dreary, the next it will be balmy, sunny, and a teaser for spring. I’m at the point where I’ve had it with winter and I’m eager for spring to show up and […]

Gudauri Ski Weekend

I’ve said it before a few times on this blog, I’m not a very strong skier. I learned late, I’m uncoordinated, and I simply don’t get enough time on the slopes to ever get comfortable. My last skiing experience was Shymbulak in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and I absolutely hated every minute of it. I spent more […]

Izzie is Four

Today is Izzie’s fourth birthday. She is the only one of our five pets whose birthday we know with absolute certainty. I know I’ve talked about her a bit on this blog, but since it’s her special day I thought it would be fun to focus on our first puppy love for a day. Izzie […]

Tbilisi’s Sulfur Baths

The longer I’ve lived in Tbilisi, the more I’ve come to realize this is a city full of surprises. For instance, did you know an area of downtown is actually geothermal? I do now. There are actually several sulfur bathhouses clustered together in the Abanotubani neighborhood in Old Tbilisi that make for an excellent way […]

Book Review: The Utopia Experiment

The Utopia Experiment came into my life in a rather odd way. I hardly ever purchase books in airports (they are expensive and usually not my cup of tea), but when traveling at some point in 2015 or 2016 I had a moment of weakness. I don’t know if it was the title that caught […]

Let’s Talk Grocery Shopping

Today marked only the second day in the seven months we’ve been in Georgia that I actually drove myself to the nearest grocery store. Sean didn’t take the main car to work, we needed food, and I just wasn’t feeling walking today. It’s odd how my perspective shifts when I’m overseas when it comes to […]
